Even More “Zombie” Films

Remember how I said Dawn of the Dead was insanely popular and every movie ever wanted to be related to it? Then Fulci’s Zombie 2 came out and made an even stronger brand. I recently went over the more commonly accepted parts of the Zombi series including its official (BARELY official) sequels. Not EVERY country used the same films or even the same numbering for this loosely connected ‘series,” so there is actually a great deal of unofficial Zombi movies.

RETITLES OF “OFFICIAL” ZOMBI MOVIES

Arrow's Zombie Flesh Eaters bookletIn America (and the titles I’m more familiar with) follow this numbering:

  • Dawn of the Dead

  • Zombie (The Fulci Film)

  • Zombi 3

  • Zombi 4: After Death

  • Zombi 5: Killing Birds

In the UK, after Dawn of the Dead, the 4 Italian movies were released as Zombie Flesh Eaters and numbered 1-3 (They don’t include Killing Birds). Same titles and numbers in Thailand but they DO include Killing Birds as Zombie Flesh Eaters 4.

In Germany, Lucio Fulci’s Zombi was released as Woodoo so it wasn’t even included as part of the Zombi series. In Germany we have:

  • woodoo3Zombie (Romero’s Dawn of the Dead)

  • Zombie 2: Das Letzte Kapitel (Romero’s Day of the Dead)

  • Zombie 3 (Italy’s Zombi 3)

T-Z VIDEO

51oVwcIKsLL._SX200_QL80_In the 1990s a company called T-Z Video (aka Edde Entertainment) released several movies on home video and simply called them all Zombie and numbered them one right after another, making for even more unofficial sequels.

  • Zombie (Dawn of the Dead)

  • Zombie 2 (The Fulci film)

  • Zombie 3: Return of the Zombies

    This is a 1973 Spanish film starring Paul Naschy called La Orgia de los Muertos – “The Orgy of the Dead” alternatively titled The Hanging Woman or Terror of the Living Dead which is the title I watched is as. It’s not that bad, actually, but feels like a Hammer movie. Not at all fitting with the aesthetic of the Italian films.

  • Zombie 4: A Virgin Among the Living Dead
    This is a Jess Franco movie: Christina, princes de l’erotisme which I know nothing about. Jess Franco directed a LOT of stuff.

  • Zombie 5: Revenge of the House of Usher
    Jess Franco’s adaptation of Poe’s tale “Fall of the House of Usher” which I don’t know why anyone would try to say is part of the Italian “zombie” saga.

  • Zombie 6: Monster Hunter
    Well at least it’s an Italian film for this “sequel” – Joe D’Amato’s Absurd which is sometimes referred to as Anthropophagus 2 simply because its a super gory film where George Eastman kills people. I’ve discussed this movie HERE And fellow Geek Juice contributor Glenn Criddle has discussed it HERE

  • Zombie 7

    Has no subtitle. This is Joe D’Amato’s Anthropophagus. Because in the T-Z Video universe this movie is a sequel to its own sequel
